Happy Tuesday everyone! We did it! We finally tackled the trampoline~hip hip hooray! My sweet Uncle Tony blessed the girls with a trampoline a few years ago. They LOVED it! They had fun making up routines, practicing cheers, and just having fun. I enjoyed jumping with them (You know it's kinda hard on the old bladder after having babies :-) )
Anyway, we had a huge storm this fall. The powerful winds picked up the trampoline and transported it towards Hannah's bedroom window. Right before it hit her windows, God graciously picked it up and threw it over the fence. It landed in the field in many pieces. I didn't have the heart to tell Uncle Tony. He noticed the trampoline was gone when he came for Christmas.
A few weeks after his visit, two large boxes were delivered to our house. A new trampoline! It was such a fun surprise and blessing. We vowed to put it together when the weather warmed up. Honestly, we meant to put it up around spring break. Spring break's deadline turned into the first day of summer vacation...which turned into...I'm embarrassed to say...we put it together this weekend. Parents of the year! That's us.

Su comprende instructiones, Lizzie?
Here we go! We think we can! We think we can! We think we can!
Cousin "J" stopped by to offer support and to play a few games of Mario Kart. (Have you been practicing lately?) Okay, back to the trampoline:
Are we ever going to get to jump????
Yippee!!! Three cheers for Uncle Tony and our new trampoline!!!
Look at these mad skills!
I can jump higher than you!
From trampoline-less (I almost typed tramp-less...I crack myself up) to this! Isn't it pretty? You need to oooh and ahhhh a little louder. I can't hear you!
This baby took a while to put up but we had fun in the process. It is so nice to have a trampoline again. Way to go Daddy, we couldn't have put it together without you. Thank you Uncle Tony. We love you sooooo much!
